I adore big, bold flavors.  In fact, buffalo chicken is one of my favorite things – ever…and I’m not talking about wings.  I’m not really a fan of eating a little bit of meat off of little bones.  But give me anything else that uses buffalo sauce and I will be a happy camper.  Sometimes it isn’t always easy to incorporate bold flavors into quick weeknight meals.  Tyson makes an All Natural Ground Chicken that is sold in 1 lb. packages and so very perfect for cooking up and adding to your favorite meals that use ground meat.  It’s available at Walmart and I got all of the other ingredients for this #CreateAMeal there too.

Another bold flavor that is the perfect complement to buffalo sauce?  Cilantro.  It’s my all time favorite herb and I rarely leave the grocery store without a bunch of.  This basic meal could be used as a backdrop for many different flavor combos.  I went the buffalo chicken and cilantro rice route – what a flavorful path to take!  I love how this all mixes together in one bowl and it doesn’t really take too long to get on the table and could be made ahead of time if you have something scheduled right before dinner time.  Win-win.  You could also take it to go by putting it in a tortilla and wrapping it in foil.  Voila – fast food.

A flavorful weeknight meal using Tyson Ground Chicken that will be on the dinner table in about 30 minutes.


  • 1 cup MEDIUM GRAIN RICE, uncooked

  • 1 Tablespoon BUTTER
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup BUFFALO HOT SAUCE (I like Frank's Red Hot)
  • 1/4 cup CHOPPED FRESH CILANTRO, plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 cup CHOPPED GREEN ONION, plus more for garnish.


  1. In a skillet over medium heat, cook ground chicken. Drain and set aside.
  2. Put water, rice and butter in a medium saucepan and cook according to package instructions.
  3. Stir cilantro and green onion into cooked rice.
  4. Add desired amount of buffalo hot sauce to chicken. Mix well.
  5. Divide rice among 4 bowls. Top with buffalo chicken. Sprinkle with blue cheese crumbles and extra green onion and cilantro, drizzle with dressing and serve.


If everyone isn't a buffalo sauce lover, add sauce to individual portions. Use barbecue or teriyaki sauce for those that don't like spicy.

If you aren't a fan of blue cheese, use a shredded monterey jack or cheddar cheese or leave the cheese out.
